‘Damaged’ Prisoner of Azkaban: Illustrated Edition (UK)

I’m not sure if this is a one off and of interest:

I was gifted a copy of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Illustrated Edition for Christmas and when I removed the cover art sleeve, I found that there was no metallic embellishment down the spine of the book like the previous two in my collection.

I contacted Bloomsbury UK to ask if there was any particular reason for this break in continuity, or if my copy of the book had not been embellished in error.

Within a couple of days they replied to me saying the book ‘appeared to be printed incorrectly’ and in another email it was referred to as ‘damaged’. - They have since sent me a replacement copy, free of charge and allowed me to keep my original copy.

I was wondering if you’d experienced or heard of any other damaged or incorrectly printed Harry Potter books and if they’re of interest to anybody?
